Pascal Jolivet was founded in 1987 and is one of the most dynamic domaines in France’s Loire Valley.
Based in Sancerre, the domaine now owns 70 hectares of vineyards spread across the appellations of Sancerre and Pouilly Fumé.
The domaine supplements the estate holdings with additional fruit sourced from long-term contract growers some of the prime sites of the region including ‘Les Caillottes’, ‘Le Chêne Marchand’ and ‘Le Clos du Roy’.
This wine is selected from a 3.5 hectare parcel of 40 year old vines planted on south facing slopes at the top of the village of Bué-en-Sancerre in the area called “La Plante des Prés”, one of the best sites in Sancerre. Soils are rich in limestone with excellent drainage; yields are very low.
Wonderfully pure with great concentration.
Notes of wet stones and citrus, this wine is elegant with peach flavours and an attractive flinty character on the finish.
